duck problems

I took my dog duck hunting for the first time a couple weeks ago, and I kept he duck and froze it for later use. I tried to get him to retrieve it for me, he did after a while but he wouldnt pick it up without chewing it. And he wouldn't hold it very well. I'm just wondering if anyone can help. He's...

Re: My dogs first day.

I've been there before and most of the birds are good but some of them have a little trouble getting in the air. If he does try to catch a bird what would i do and how do i stop him.

Re: puppy bird intro question

I think one of the only reasons people use pidgeons is because they are small and non intimidating(Ussually). Pretty much just so the dog dosnt get beat up and scared of the birds.

Re: **Force Fetch**

I did force fetch with my dog and he is great.From wht ive seen THe only thing it changes is his desire to retrive (in a good way). Would say that track would be the only one you cant force your dog to do. But i havent done much compared to alot of you guys.

Do pigoens wing feathers grow back?

Quite a while ago I got some pigoens to train my dog and I trimed all the birds wings so they didnt get away. But now I need birds that can fly farther than I can throw them.

Re: new bumpers

He used to really love his canvas bumper. But then I started to use birds and now he won't take his old canvas one or his new plastic one. So you think I spoiled him on the bird or somthing like that.
